Subject: 2nd SET WHINE
Subject: Set 1 is one of the best of '85
The sound quality of the recording is very good. How could it not be from Jim & Doug Oade. I used to hang out with Jim and his buddy Carlos before a lot of shows this tour and other mid-80's shows. They were a always great crew. Extremely nice guys who were into the music for the music. There are lots of stories about taper-snobs from that era, but these guys were not among them. They made those long waits to get into GA shows very entertaining.
Anyway, set 2 has an unpleasant ring in the PA for a good portion of it. It happened at the show and there was nothing anyone seemed to be able to do to stop it. The set never got going from that promising first set because of it. The Help is on the Way is almost completely disjointed as a result.
D/L the first set and love it. It did not get any better in this era. However, I would not bother with the second set unless you were there.
